This really gets to me. Today I learned of two more friends, in their 50s, laid-off this month from their jobs. Both are very good men--hardworking, honest, decent through-and-through--the kind of guys that are always there for others. Both are men I know from the volunteer world. They work food pantries, PADS and they distribute coats, gloves and hats to the homeless out on the streets, always ready to give of themselves--the kind of guys who would donate a kidney to a stranger.
